Circus Fun at the Shop Hop

On Saturday I joined my friend Becky, Gretchen and her mom on a very abbreviated (for me anyway) shop hop. I met them at Little Quilts in Marietta for some circus fun. Since I my machine had been recently repaired I was trying not to do too much fabric damage. However, I can always find something that I like at Little Quilts. I went armed with a list, and only bought one thing that wasn't on my list. Last week I got a really cute pincushion pattern, I needed pale green wool for the leaves, found it plus some really nice floral for the actual pincushion. I did buy a fat quarter bundle of shirtings. It wasn't on my list but I really really needed it. From Little Quilts I headed to Tiny Stitches, while Becky, Gretchen and her mom stopped for lunch. I bought a couple of fat quarters and a pajama pattern at Tiny Stitches. I can honestly say it was one of the few times I have been in there and didn't want to buy everything that I saw. It would have been great to do more than 2 shops but I really need to get some of my kits completed, plus all of those other patterns that I have been saving.

It was a fun day! Enjoyed attending "The Circus" with you! Glad that you hopped with us for a bit. Should have joined us for lunch. Great bar-b-que sandwiches.
